I am from Bacolod and I can proudly say that our Piaya and our Chicken Inasal are the best! :) I hear that Cebu is proud of their mangoes, Davao is proud of their durian and Batangas is proud of their coffee. What are the best food in other places? I am curious and I want to try them out in the future when I get to travel around the country. Discuss.

I am from Surigao and now take up a permanent residence here in Davao because of my work. Surigao is known for crabs, shrimps, lobsters and prawns, when I was still a kid, my father cooked a super delicious crabs stuff with young coconut, the shrimps cooked in sprite and butter is a spectacular delicacy, I missed those foods because they are all quite expensive here in Davao, but everytime I took vacation, I had a chance to eat those. In Surigao we have also a rare oyster they are prominent, especially in our place, during full moon, it is a super nutritious sea food which can be eaten raw. Actually the province I came from is known to have various types of seafoods which cannot be found anywhere in the Philippines, maybe because we facing the mighty Pacific Ocean and very rich in seafoods of various kinds. Of course right now that I am living in Davao City fruits and vegetables are the familiar sights, Durian and Mangosteen are cheaper but I rarely eat them because I always saw them in fruit stand,so I am not curious anymore and my excitement is not the same as I saw an Apple tree.LOL!
